This architectural tour de force atop an ultra-private 3,633m2 north facing estate sets a new standard for exclusive riverfront living.
A winner of The Master Builder’s Association “Australian House of The Year”, the grand masterpiece boasts 39m of absolute river frontage with unobstructed views into the distance up two reaches of the river and across to parkland. The home which has two street frontages and is bounded by parkland is unveiled in all its glory from a long tree-lined driveway traversing sprawling manicured lawns and gardens offering room aplenty for all manner of pursuits, including tennis.
Distinctive water features embrace the striking entranceway; entree to the breathtaking river spectacle beyond which is framed by soaring ceilings and a prolific use of glass. Equally grand open plan living, dining and kitchen areas share in the omnipresence of light and space taking full advantage of the stunning river panorama and prevailing breezes. The purpose designed gourmet kitchen makes entertaining a stylish delight with its socially inclusive, long bar island bench, quality appliances, and massive walk through butler’s pantry and scullery.
This substantial living area is serviced by a full bathroom and a powder room both of which feature Italian Bisazza tiles from floor to ceiling. A state of the art theatre room left of the living areas takes family movie nights to another level. Also here may be found the guest or fifth bedroom and bathroom facilities. Taking pride of place upstairs is the indulgent master suite with its generous dressing room space, opulent ensuite inclusive of an island bath, chandelier, double shower, and double vanity, and huge river balcony ideal for peaceful relaxation while soaking up the amazing river outlook.
Another large bedroom parallel positioned to the master within the eastern wing expands the accommodation options. Across the glass bottom air bridge to the western wing lie the home’s remaining bedrooms, all spacious with generous robes and wide patios, and all again positioned to optimise the northerly river views and breezes. Heading in the opposite direction down from the entry level is the home’s artful wine cellar, multiple storage spaces and four car garaging equipped with Tesla charging facilities.
The ground level living areas flow seamlessly out to all weather covered patios and resort-style pool area that includes an amazing 18 metre infinity pool. A separate outdoor entertaining deck, seating area and fire-pit remain open to the stars. Like the home itself, all of the entertainment areas are positioned to take in the long uninterrupted northern trajectory of the river. The slow descent down fully landscaped grounds to the river and its pontoon facilities is always a rewarding sensory treat.
Additional features of the fine riverfront estate include reverse cycle air-conditioning, intercom, security, vertical gardens, a gas fire-place and a further four visitor car parks. The property is located within walking distance to St Aidan’s School and to the railway, offering fast access to many of Brisbane’s public and private educational facilities. It sits amongst quality boutique local shopping and several larger shopping centres.
The sale of the estate represents a distinctively rare opportunity to acquire a significant absolute riverfront holding in a quality family friendly neighbourhood so very close to this fast growing city.
